University of Lincoln Assessment Centre

Main Admin Building BrayfordULAC provide friendly needs assessments to UK students in receipt of a DSA (Disabled Student’s Allowance) for a disability, a learning difficulty (SpLD), or a medical condition.

Please contact us at or on 01522 886400 to enquire about the next available appointment

Assessments are usually relaxed meetings where we listen to your concerns, and help you to identify equipment, software, services or support that is appropriate to your specific needs, and your chosen course.

We can also provide ‘Assessments of Needs’ to students attending other UK universities, as well as those studying at the University of Lincoln.

Please note that the assessment fee is inclusive (to include any Top-Up assessments).

Our office in Lincoln, with 2 available assessment rooms, is only a short distance from the city’s rail and bus stations.

For those with cars, we can usually arrange free VIP parking even closer to our Lincoln office.

The ULAC centre is wheelchair accessible.

Our opening times are on the contact ULAC page.

ULAC assessments seek to ensure that your degree outcome is a true reflection of your inner ability and not your disability.

ULAC is an accredited member of NNAC (National Network of Assessment Centres) and supports the independent quality standards recommended by DSA-QAG.

We always try to arrange earlier appointments if possible. 

Please note that the Quality Assurance Framework recommendation for the next available appointment should be 15 days.

Please contact ULAC to check for any last minute cancellations by other students.

Please note, any delay in contacting us for an assessment may equally delay the authorisation and the provision of any agreed support package. We recommend you contact ULAC as soon as possible.
